Will & Jada Release Statement To Squash Divorce Rumors!

Yesterday the internet was buzzing with rumors that Hollywood power couple Will and Jada Pinkett-Smithwere divorcing after 13 year of marriage. Now the Smith’s have hit back at the false story – first printed in In Touch Weekly – revealing they’re still very much so together.

A rep for the couple released a statement in order to put the malicious rumors to bed.

“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false,” the couple said in a joint statement. “We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”

Will’s son Trey even took to Twitter to address the gossip. “Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information … its not true RETWEET!!!” he wrote. “Everyone can think what they want … even if its not true.”

Will and Jada even took an afternoon shopping trip this afternoon (as seen above) in a show of public solidarity, further proving that the internet rumors were just hot air.

Phew! Well I’m glad to hear that all’s well in the Smith house hold…

Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith Split?

According to reports Hollywood’s beloved couple Will and Jada Picnkett-Smith have seperated after 13 years of married life.

The seemingly perfect marriage of Hollywood power couple Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith has come to a shock end, according to a report.

Smith, 42, and his 39-year-old wife of 13 years are said to have decided to end their marriage, said America’s In Touch Weekly magazine.

A spokesperson for the couple is yet to comment on the claims, however, some close to the couple are insisting the story is inaccurate.

The pair, who earned £20 million between them last year alone, have two children together – Jaden, 13, and Willow, ten.

The bride (and groom) wore white: The couple both dressed in Badgley Mischka for their 1997 nuptials. Jada was two months pregnant with Jaden at the time Will & Jada at their 1997 wedding

The Smith’s reps have yet to comment on the story, so until there’s an official statement, I’m going to hope this is not true, because if the Smith’s can’t make it, what hope is there for the rest of us?!

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air Cast In Talks For A Reunion!

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air cast are in talks for a one-off reunion special. Tatyana Ali, or Ashley Banks as we knew her in the hit 90′s tevelision series, told Hollywood Life that she has been in talks with lead starWill Smith about the project.

Ali said: “I still keep in touch with Will and it would be great to work with him again. The whole cast including Will just talked about doing a reunion.”

According to the actress, scheduling conflicts is the main obstacle that’s preventing filming from starting: “I think everyone would be into it [but] it just depends on everyone’s schedule,” she said. “I was on the show for six years from beginning to end, so having a reunion would be so much fun.”

This was one of my favourite shows back in the day, so I really hope they do make a reunion. They really don’t make sitcoms like they used to…

Author Terry McMillan Thinks Willow & Jaden Smith Are Being “Pimped” & “Exploited”

This week it was revealed that Will Smith and Jay-Z are teaming up to make an up-to-date version of the classic children’s film “Annie”, and will cast Will’s 10-year-old daughter, Willow, as the lead character.

Someone who is not too pleased with this news is author Terry McMillan. The outspoken writer – who penned best selling novels Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back – took to her twitter yesterday (Wednesday 26), to vent her thoughts on the Smith children’s upbringing,  suggesting that the kids may be being “exploited” and “pimped” by their super star parents.

She tweeted:

The Smith children already act like child stars. There’s an arrogance in their demeanor and behavior. I find it incredibly sad. It feels like the Smith children are being pimped and exploited. Or, they’re already hungry for fame. What about 4th grade?

A lot of A-list movie stars shielded their children from the Hollywood-world until they were old enough to decide. Look at those who didn’t. Look at Lindsay. Phoenix. To name but a few. They miss out on childhood. It’s more important than fame.

These kids don’t already know what they “love”. Total bullshit. They’re not prodigies. They think Hollywood is real.

Why don’t they do a remake of The Little Rascals and call it a day? Or, come up with an original film with some ethnic pride. Come on.

Okay. I’ve said enough about the Smith children. I’m not debating about them. It’s just my opinion. People can justify anything, though.

In 4th grade my son came home complaining that the kids in his school said I was famous and rich. I told him that was not true. That some of my books were popular but not everybody liked them. That we could afford a vacation. “Oh” he said, and went back & repeated it. I wanted him to think of me as his mother. He didn’t read any of my novels until he was 15. He only read 26 pages. Was bored.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everybody. I raised my son. I’m not wasting another minute worrying about how Will & Jada are raising their kids.

P.S. I loved the Karate Kid.

There’s no doubting the kids are very young, but it seems like they genuinely enjoy acting, singing and being in the limelight. Of course a lot of child stars have gone off the rails when they grow older. But you can’t  compare the Smith kids to Linsay Lohan. If you look at LiLo’s background, she went through some really tough times with her family, especially with her dad (who was in and out of jail during her younger years).  Not to mention Lindsay’s pay-check practically supported her family, and that’s a big burden for any child to have. On the other hand, the Smith kids are not under any pressure financially. But money aside, Will and Jada seem like very dedicated good parents.

Personally I think Terry’s comments were a little harsh. I think Will and Jada are good role models for their kids and seem to be doing a really good job in raising their talented brood. But hey, everyone’s entitled to their opinion.

Jada Pinkett Speaks About Her Relationship With Tupac & Open Marrige

Jada Pinkett stopped by at WJLB Morning Show with Coco, Foolish & Mr. Chase yesterday morning to promote the new season of Hawthorne. And whilst there gave a really interesting interview where she opened up about her relation with the late Tupac and her alleged open marriage to Will Smith.

Here are son extracts frm the interview:

On her relationship with Tupac Shakur:

“Pac and I were never in a romance but I feel as though we had those feelings. It was more of a “platonic romance” between each other. We knew us being together in a romantic way would destroy everything because we were both fire. We would burn everything up! So we knew in order to preserve our relationship there was no way we could ever add romance to it cause we probably would’ve killed each other!”

On her rumored open marriage to Will Smith

We always have people that we’re attracted to that we talk about. That don’t stop just because your married. Somebody’s always gonna catch your eye. That’s real. Somebody’s gonna always be prettier than me, and somebody’s always gonna be more in awe of him than me, and he gonna be like *in Will’s voice* ‘yo she really like me’ (laughter) but as far as somebody being right for us… is there somebody right for a nice night? Maybe. But somebody that can sustain our life and sustain what we’ve built together, absolutely not!

Jada x Will x Jay-Z x Beyonce In NYC

Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith met up with Hip-hop power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce in New York last night at the Palm West in honor of the Broadway Play “FELA”.  The play – which is funded by both Will and Jay – is based on the life of Nigerian Afro-beat pioneer Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

 

Will and Jada are such a beautiful couple and they’ve been going strong for so many years – something that’s incredibly rare in Hollywood.
